"Honestly, I think it's ludicrous to make councilors get up there and pledge their allegiance," he said, at the meeting, as reported by the local newspaper. "I don't think there's anybody in this room who is more patriotic than I am. I don't think there is anybody in this room who has done more military service — over 30 years — than I have. ...
